Making sure the building was preserved now and in the future

ZGA accomplished a partial renovation of this building for the Idaho Commission
for the Arts in 1990 and was commissioned to complete this renovation in 2001. The State of Idaho wanted to preserve this significant historical resource and First Lady Patricia Kempthorne stepped in to make sure the building was preserved for Idahoans now and in the future.

Structural deficiencies, accessibility problems and a complete rehabilitation were completed with the assistance of the State Historic Preservation Office to insure adherence to the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation. New mechanical and electrical systems were installed to bring this historic structure into the 21st century. It can now be used for meetings, receptions, and historic tours of the capital city.
